Several years ago I was given the best present, a PDA. I stumbled onto ebooks.com not long after that where several classics were available without charge. They offered a basic free program which I used at first, upgrading quickly to the premium and later thesaurus and dictionary. Now I can read when I want, make notes, bookmark, and best of all I can look up any word as I read! Wow! I was even able to switch my reading program to fit a newer PDA and I can read these same books on my laptop with a separate free program. So many free books are available on line now, classics especially, that my bookshelf contains more than it did when I read “real” books. When my current PDA stops working I’ll switch to another reader. The only books I don’t read electronically are textbooks. I have not been able to replace my tried and true study method. Being able to flip paper pages as I write notes is more comfortable for me. I’m mid 50’s, female.
